A Big Step Achieved in Greenhouse Gas Conversion[Aug 15, 2017]

A demonstration project of producing syngas from carbon dioxide has passed an industrial demonstration in north China's Shanxi Province recently.

Scientists Identify IE1 as the First Potential HCMV-encoded E3 Ubiquitin Ligase[Aug 14, 2017]

In the present study, the research group led by Prof. LUO Minhua from Wuhan Institute of Virology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences report for the first time that HCMV infection downregulates Hes1 protein at the level in human NPCs through IE1 via a newly identified function, which may be a key mechanism that contributes to fetal brain maldevelopment caused by congenital HCMV infection.

Tibetan Plateau Gets Wetter and Greener in Early Summer in Recent Decades[Aug 11, 2017]

The change of water supplies over the TP has long been a “hotspot” of climate change research. Recently, a new study conducted by Dr. ZHANG Wenxia, Prof. ZHOU Tianjun and Dr. ZHANG Lixia from Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences shows that the Tibetan Plateau has been getting significantly wetter in May since 1979.

Scientists Identify a New Mechanism of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Expansion[Aug 11, 2017]

Using zebrafish as a model, the Hematopoiesis and Cardiovascular Development Group from the Institute of Zoology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, led by Prof. LIU Feng, found that the developing HSPCs are closely associated with the dynamic vascular niche in the zebrafish CHT through observing the HSPC behavior in vivo by confocal microscopy.

Global Warming Will Leave Different Fingerprints on Global Subtropical Anticyclones[Aug 11, 2017]

To assess the possible responses of the subtropical anticyclones to greenhouse gases (GHG) forcing, scientists adopted multiple metrics and obtained robust results. Coupled models under GHG forcing show that the subtropical anticyclones over North Pacific, South Atlantic and South Indian Ocean will become weaker in future under RCP8.5 scenario, whereas the subtropical anticyclones over North Atlantic and South Pacific will become stronger.

Transcription Factor FOXO Regulates Juvenile Hormone Degradation in Insects[Aug 10, 2017]

Professor TAN Anjiang and his colleagues at Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology of Chinese Academy of Sciences investigated the role of FOXO in JH signaling using the silkworm, Bombyx mori, a lepidopteran model insect with economic importance as a model. Their findings provided the first evidence that FOXO interacts with JH degradation, revealing the complexity of hormone regulation on insect growth and development.
